PRIORITY: Safe Roads
One of Local Motion's top legislative priorities is and always will be safe roads for everyone. Everything about our transportation system—from how we design and build our roads to how the rights and responsibilities of all road users are defined—has to work not only for people driving, but also for people walking and biking.
Many aspects of Vermont's motor vehicle laws date to the 1970s or earlier, and are in desperate need of revision. We began the process of building support for change in the 2016 season (see our legislative report for more details). The work will continue in 2017 and beyond.
